If I load in an SFS file into the barebones version....and then remaster it...will the programs that were in the sfs be included in the remaster...thus not
requiring the sfs to be distributed?

This is an important question so I am answering it here.

NO - SFS's (and TCZ's) that are mounted with SFS-TCZ_Linker only put symlinks of the packages files into Puppies filesystem. Thus, if you remaster with a package loaded you will get a bunch of broken symlinks included in your remaster. (This I have not done so am speculating.)

YES - If, on the other hand, you load an SFS with Bootmanager at startup the package files themselves will be placed in the Puppy filesystem. When you remaster you will have the complete package installed permanently. Although you will have to make sure that the /root/package and /etc/package components are there during the remaster by editing /tmp/root and /tmp/etc.(This I have done so know of what I speak.)

Sub_title: Not an official puplet, I think
 

puppymartin announced a 4.3.1-based Browserlinux that uses Chrome. It's 73 MB for the .iso, to be found at http://www.browserlinux.com.

It has very few apps in it, and I have been able to use it in a VMware Player 3.0 machine and install VMware Tools to it, with the appropriate devx-431.sfs and kernel-xxx.sfs. He also has a Firefox version.

If you look at the bottom of each of jrb's posts, it tells you.
